DISCLAIMER: These ships/rovers are designed for PC, with scripts. they will work without them, but some functionality (eg. advanced wheel control, automated mining and shuttle routes, etc.) and fancy LCD readouts will be missing.


Designed to replace and improve upon the original, now decommisioned, Excavator. Featuring smoother controls, a slightly wider drill profile, more cargo space and more docking options.

The Ratel is designed for excavation and mining, it is able to fit into the tunnel it mines and can change tunnel elevation though timer blocks manipulating wheel suspension height offset. Be sure to have wheel suspension strength turned high enough for height offset changes to be effective.


Tools & Weapons:
2 forward facing drills

2 Large Batteries
1 Hydrogen Engine
1 Hydrogen Generator

Movement & Control:
1 Cockpit
1 Remote Control
1 Gyroscope
6 Wheels (3x3)

Cargo Space
5 Medium Cargo Containers
3 Connectors

4 Cameras - front, top, underside and rear

1 Sensor (for use with PAM)
2 Spotlights

This ship has an empty mass of 18198 kgs.

All ships in this set have a rear mounted Merge block and can be printed using a welder wall with one (large grid) piston. However in this design the merge block will have to be ground down if docking via the rear connector, all blocks that require removal are painted bright red.
